CHRISTMASTIME MAINZ TO VIENNA

Tour: WFV  MAINZ  VIENNA
This European Christmas cruise is a very special holiday river cruise takes you to many beautiful and historical cities of Germany and Austria. And the views along the way can’t be outdone—quaint villages and castles festively decorated as you cruise down the Main and Danube Rivers.

Board your ship In Wiesbaden, and sail along the Main, dotted with charming small towns with half-timbered houses and narrow streets. Take a guided walk of one of these picturesque Bavarian villages—sure to be even more appealing lit up with festive lights and decorations. In Würzburg, visit the ornate Bishop’s Residenz, then stroll through the Christmas markets while you sip Glühwein (hot mulled wine). Continue your Christmastime river cruise to Bamberg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where the many nativity scenes exhibited throughout the town are sure to delight.

On to Nuremberg where, after your guided tour, you are free to visit the Christmas market—one of the most famous in the world. Visit Munich, the Bavarian capital, where a local expert shows you the sights. The traditional Christmas market is located on the Marienplatz, with aromas of toasted almonds, roasted chestnuts, and gingerbread filling the air. Enjoy a guided tour in Regensburg, then continue to Melk and experience the splendor of its Benedictine Abbey, one of Europe’s most architecturally-breathtaking monasteries, and enjoy a tasting of traditional Austrian cookies.

Finally, in Vienna, the capital and treasure of Austria, go on a culinary walk through the Christmas markets to taste some of the traditional fare. A perfect ending to a festive river cruise showing you some of the best that Germany and Austria have to offer this time of year!
